Bad news for Seals fans?

Check out the press release from the Seals this afternoon:

Press conference called for Wednesday at 1:00 p.m.
For Immediate Release
Tuesday November 9, 2010
Victoria, BC – The Victoria Seals announce that they will be holding a press conference to make a major announcement regarding the future of the franchise tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 p.m. (PT)... 

We have known for some time that most of the teams in the GBL are in dire straights. My hope was that somehow we'd see the three solid Canadian clubs in the GBL survive, perhaps by merging with another independent league. It looks like that might not happen. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

It appears that the Seals are folding. The T-C seems to have been granted an inside scoop on the story.
